Did the same recipe today substituting DME for the LME and what a difference that made. My pale ale is actually pale, instead of the red ale the LME gave me. Smelled much more like my all grain batches, too. Thanks, everyone, for the tip.
By the way, on the last beer I made with the LME, the molasses character in the LME carried over into the finished beer. Way too thick, sweet and with a flavor and aroma of molasses/syrup. Dumper batch. Not doing LME again.
